At center, a seated woman in three quarter profile looks toward us with a calm but firm expression. She has dark eyes with wrinkles just visible around the corners and on her forehead, and her dark hair is tucked into a white kerchief. She wears a black lace shawl over a full floor length dress of dark gold satin. On her right hand she wears a long white fingerless glove, and in her left hand holds another one in her lap. She sits in a silk upholstered chair, and a curtain behind her is pulled away to show a marble column.
